How to Write Your Life Story: A Memoir Intensive for Women Veterans

How to Write Your Life Story: A Memoir Intensive for Women Veterans

  • AB Tech - Small Business Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The secret to a good story is not only the ingredients that go into it but also the way in which it’s told. In this six-week writing intensive, we will discuss how to take memories and events from life and turn them into an interesting story by doing the research, organizing the ideas and making writing clear and readable. We’ll explore the creative process with writing exercises, readings and group discussions. We’ll learn what steps to take to get a story published. At the end of the course, participants will design a writing plan complete with goals and a timeline and have the option to create a writing critique group. Each session will build on the previous session, therefore, it will work best for participants that are able to make a commitment to attend all six sessions.

Writing the Mystery: A 6-Week Spiritual Memoir Intensive

NOTE: I am offering this class in Weaverville or the Asheville area soon! Just go to my Contact Page and get in touch!

Do you have a passion for meaning, truth and mystery? Do life’s big questions tug at your heart? Have you had some experiences that you’d define as extraordinary, mystical and profound?

If you feel called to write about your spiritual journey, but don’t know where to start or how to structure your ideas, this 6-week intensive will open those doors and more! Each week we will explore the writing process using the lens of the sacred. The intensive will be inspirational and motivational as well as grounded in the practical steps needed to craft a book. In the process of learning and stretching, we will be working on the following:

  • How to choose memories and turn them into an interesting story

  • How to structure your book

  • How to determine the primary theme of your book

  • How to organize your writing time

  • How to deal with resistance

  • How to make your writing clear and readable

  • How to move from drafting to editing

  • Plus, a brief look at critique groups, liability, publishing, etc.

The best part? Support! Encouragement! Common Purpose!

 As you gather the courage to dive into the mystery of your life, you will be surrounded with support and encouragement from a group of kindreds. Together, we will learn to love the questions more than the answers, as the sense of discovery will be ever-present and the awareness that the group is all tapping into something much larger than each individual.

Group is limited to 8 participants.

Weaverville Ben Franklin Circle

Weaverville Ben Franklin Circle

The purpose of Benjamin Franklin Circles is to unite around two shared goals: Improving ourselves, and improving our world. Through talking about Franklin’s original 13 virtues in the context of the present day, we can commit to making better and more conscious choices about our own behavior and work with others to spread those virtues through acts of kindness and good deeds.

Each month, we'll meet for an hour and a half to discuss one of the virtues. It's modeled after a group run by Ben Franklin called the Junto, a weekly mutual-improvement club made up of individuals with an array of interests and skills. This group led to the creation of public libraries, the volunteer fire department and the post office.

Word Alchemy - A 6-Week Writing Workshop

to Feb 2

Word Alchemy - A 6-Week Writing Workshop

Words can limit you and words can free you. Words can wound you and words can heal you. Words can inhibit you and words can elevate you. What will you choose? Using music, images, prompts, seed questions, partner and group exercises, we will immerse ourselves in the creative universe of the imagination, commune with the inner Muse and explore the hidden realms of the unconscious to call the formless into form. With a spirit of adventure, we will journey together into the mystery and return with a softer heart and a nourished soul. Translating our impressions into words, we’ll have opportunities to share our discoveries and become a mirror for others.

Community Building Using Intuitive Generosity

Just as we l have things and services we want, al have things and services we can offer to others. The key to breaking free from dependence on a money-based economy is to bring those wants and offers together. This is also a great way to build community because the focus is on connecting and sharing rather than isolation, scarcity and spending. We'll explore the principles of "six degrees of separation"  and intuitive generosity, then we’ll do a sharing exercise that demonstrates these principles in an inspiring as well as practical way. The premise is simple: tap into the ideas and resources of a room full of people, and all kinds of impossible things become possible. Join us for an evening of fun and possibility!

Note: I am guest facilitating this event for the Community Network Gathering Meetup Group. For more information and details: https://www.meetup.com/Community-Network-Gathering/
